Nagina Riaz, Sohail Amjad
Restorative Justice has been the much needed aspect of almost every nation to be included in the main stream legal system. Most of the developed countries have incorporated it in to its statutes and similarly feeling the need Pakistan has also strived hard to bring in the Restorative Justice System. Taking to the customary history, traces are found in the form of arbitration and mediation groups known as the Jirga and Panchayet system in the many areas of Pakistan and evidentially in the subcontinent. Pakistan has manifested certain laws and rules to ensure immediate justice to victims of a crime and to restore offenders to the society especially the juvenile offenders and to bring sustainable peace and harmony.
